Birthday treats (food photos)

On my actual birthday, on Thursday, I celebrated by satisfying an intense craving for key lime pie (I’m not pregnant, no idea where the craving came from).

This was homemade key lime pie at Olde Yorke Fish and Chips in Leaside, where the fish and chips are very good but I go just for the pie.

Followed by salted caramel ice cream bars with salty toffee, which were just ok.

On Saturday, I put on another pretty (and more importantly, forgiving) dress to go out for pizza again.

Beet caprese salad (Ontario heirloom beets instead of tomatoes), delicious

Beef carpaccio with arugula

Buffalo mozarella, basil, nduja sausage, house-made sausage, pepperoni – it was their special of the day, the Traditional, but I requested mine white (without tomato sauce), which I prefer.

I had the chocolate-amaretto budino again

Followed by ice cream from The Chocolateria on Roncesvalles. Salted caramel (best I’ve ever had) for me, cherry vanilla for Will, in chocolate dipped waffle cones. We made a little girl jealous when she saw us sitting enjoying our cones, she was staring at us enviously and as she was walking by we heard her ask her dad “can I have an ice cream cone?” while pointing at us.

Even one of my birthday gifts was food-related:

So with all that gluttony, it’s now time to cut back on the indulgences (or cut them out entirely, let’s be honest), and cook more at home.


  1. Oh my gosh! Yum! That pizza. And I am trying not to stare at the key lime pie. I have gained weight and now I am back on my diet. Tomorrow is weigh in, which means I am starving. That food looks so good!

    That Vanessa Virginia Dress is perfection on you. Love. It is the best dress ever. I would wear it everywhere. You look smokin' hot!

    I am glad you had a good birthday. Can't wait to see the goodies from that cookbook.


    1. OMG I know what you mean about gaining weight. I've been stressed out so of course I've been comfort eating, and it has to stop.

      I'm looking forward to using the cookbook, but I never photograph my own food because it never looks that great! We'll see though.
